Apologies for the potentially dumb question. Just want some confirmation before I part with my $$$!
I want to buy myself a set of adjustable outer tie rods so that I can correct my bumpsteer issues (lowered car, big wide wheels).
I’m going to get the ones from T3 https://technotoytun...z-260z-and-280z but they come in two configurations, one with 1xLH and 1xRH thread, and one with 2xRH thread. It says to order the one that matches your inner tie rods.
It also says that they stopped making the LH thread inner tie rods in the 80s, so anyone that has had them replaced since then (no idea – only bought the car in 2003) will most likely have the need for 2x RH configuration.
1. Does anyone know if there is a way that a mechanical novice such as myself, could determine the type I have, just by looking (I have a jack so can get under there easy enough)?
2. Would you recommend just getting the 2x RH so that if I ever need a new inner tie rod end in the future, it will fit my fancy new parts?
3. I have a spare s30 steering rack (complete). At least one of the inner tie rods on this rack MUST be RH thread (by my novice logic). This being the case, can I take the one of that and put it on (should one of the ones on my car be LH thread?)? I believe the spare rack is from a 240z, so I’m essentially asking if it will all bolt up the same (I have a 77 260 2+2), regardless of the origin of the rack and whether I use the LHS or RHS inner tie rod, so long as it is RH thread it will fit right?…
Thanks for any guidance as always!
